Will use facility to provide warehousing and distribution services
DHL Global Forwarding has signed a deal with KIZAD to establish a distribution centre that serves the needs of its customers.
Under the agreement, DHL Global Forwarding will set up warehouses in KIZAD to provide end-to-end logistics and supply chain services to its customers, who seek to leverage the optimal geographical location of KIZAD to propel their growth trajectory.
The warehouses will be used for storage and consolidation of all shipments, equipped with high-volume racking, as well as fully-managed kitting, packing and dispatching process to support customers’ growing capacity requirements.
KIZAD’s strategic location, which offers easy access to all the major transportation hubs in the UAE, will enable DHL Global Forwarding to minimise customers’ shipment times along their global supply chains.
With the new Abu Dhabi warehousing facility, DHL Global Forwarding is strengthening its network of global hubs for overseas distribution.
With a view to further benefit from KIZAD’s unique proposition DHL Global Forwarding is working closely with the authorities to expand the size of the distribution centre by April 2019.
Samir Chaturvedi, CEO of KIZAD, said, “We are pleased to welcome DHL Global Forwarding to KIZAD, which is rapidly becoming the location of choice in the UAE for local and international logistics companies.
“We look forward to supporting DHL Global Forwarding in continuing to provide world-class logistics capabilities and are proud to help strengthen its global freight network and warehousing infrastructure.
“By hosting DHL Global Forwarding, KIZAD will be advancing key sectors such as the aerospace industry, which is an important component of Abu Dhabi’s economic diversification strategy.”
Amadou Diallo, CEO, DHL Global Forwarding, Middle East and Africa said, “We are looking forward to connecting KIZAD to our extensive global network, to further propel the growth potential of Abu Dhabi as a gateway to the rest of the world.
“Beyond the immediate needs of our customers who currently operate out of KIZAD, we are also looking to invest more resources on expanding our presence here, so we can serve more customers.”
Logistics has been a key part of KIZAD’s growth since it was founded in 2010.
The industrial, logistics and manufacturing hub is also connected with Khalifa Port, one of the fastest growing ports in the world.
